Visit www.rcoa.ac.uk/WSB  to download a new initiative to prevent Wrong Site Blocks. STOP BEFORE YOU BLOCK is a scheme of work, summarised in an eye-catching poster, with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and background information to ease implementation at a local level.

AAGBI members may be aware that in November 2010 SALG produced a safety notification entitled Wrong Site Blocks During Surgery. Following that notification we received feedback from safety network members all over the country on local protocols to prevent Wrong Site Blocks. Nottingham University Hospitals volunteered the STOP BEFORE YOU BLOCK scheme. The scheme was circulated for consultation and is now endorsed by SALG.

SALG is now working on a portfolio of other work carried out to prevent or measure Wrong Site Blocks and these will soon be made available on the RCoA website. If you have any work that you would like to share on this topic please get in touch with SALG via SALG@rcoa.ac.uk.
